Plans are in place to link Cáceres to Madrid by high speed train (AVE). This is likely to be a reality[link title] in the next five years.

By car

From Madrid: Follow the A5 autopista in direction Badajoz / Portugal, leaving at Trujillo onto the A-58 autopista. Until completion of the A-58, this will lead you directly onto the older road, the N-521, after a few kilometres. Follow this road directly into the centre of Cáceres.

From Salamanca / the north: Take the A-66 southbound in direction Sevilla / Mérida. Leave the motorway at the north end (Ronda Norte) and enter the city using the N-630, which will bring you direct into the city centre.

From Seville / Mérida / the south: Take the A-66 northbound, leaving at the junction with the EX-100. Follow the signs on the N-630 to lead you directly into the city centre.

From Badajoz / Portugal: Leave the A-5 motorway and follow the regional EX-100 road to the outskirts of Cáceres. Follow the N-630 directly into the city.

By bus

From Madrid: Buses leave Madrid several times each day from the Estación del Sur. The journey takes between three and a half to four and a half hours, depending on the service / time of day. Services usually take a 20 minute break in the town of Navalmoral de la Mata. As of 18 July 2008, a single ticket costs 19,87€ (9,94€ for under 4s) and a return 36,15€ (17,89€ for under 4s) on normal services. On express services this rises to 23,75€ (11,90€) for singles and 43,40€ (21,40€) for returns.

From Seville / the south / Salamanca / the north: Buses from the Alsa company run this corridor, passing through Cáceres. Tickets (as at 18 July 2008) from Seville to Cáceres are 17,08€ single and 32,45€ return.

Cáceres Bus Station is located on the outskirts of town, around 1-2km from the city centre. Taxis are readily available, although it is an easy stroll along the Avenida de Alemania to the city centre.
